Relaxing & beautiful

Everything on their website is true. The rooms were very clean and peaceful. I loved the bathroom. The food and waitstaff in their restaurants were excellent. It takes 10 seconds to walk to St. Stephens Green. Our room was very quiet at night. All of the staff were very friendly. The bartenders make excellent drinks & conversation. It was pretty expensive, but you're supposed to spend money on vacation. I have no complaints. It was a wonderful way to spend our first night in Ireland!

My partner and I booked a long weekend (3 night stay) in this hotel. The blurb sounded great, and location could not be faulted. However, the internet site neglected to mention the night club situated right beneath the hotel, so if you're unfortunate like us, your room will be so noisy you can make out the words to the songs! In the space of 3 nights, we were forced to move rooms twice. For the first 2 nights the TV wouldn't work (we later found out this problem affected the whole hotel), we were given the option of a "free" movie on the night we chose to stay in with room service, only for the movies to crash after 10 minutes, but they still managed to charge us for the film! All in all a nightmare stay, with useless staff. The only redeeming feature was the location, right on the Green near all the shops. We later discovered from our taxi driver that the hotel is in the middle of proceedings against the adjacent nightclub, but my advice would be to book somewhere else, repacking our cases twice between arriving and departing is no fun on a short break!

We recently stayed at the Fitzwilliam while honeymooning in Ireland. The overall design & atmosphere is very well done down to the umbrellas in the rooms & the spa products. The reception/concierge staff was a bit inconsistent. Some were wonderful - personalable, helpful & attentive, some were a bit dismissive - we had to wait 1.5 hrs. for our bags because they were delivered to the wrong room & the front desk would just respond that they would be there "shortly" rather than actually check to see if they had been, so the error could have been caught much sooner. Besides that, and other "maintenance charms" that can be expected in old buildings in europe I would reccommend a stay there. Perfect location.

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Fitzwilliam Hotel

Not quite the Ritz

from Smoothie
My friend and I just spent two nights at the Fitzwilliam over the August long weekend. Immediately we were pleasantly surprised by the location particularly the proximity to Grafton street shopping and the pleasant parklands across the road. The lobby to the hotel was chic, warm and inviting with an open lit fire place amongst comfy looking couches. Once we got to our room what immediately hit us was it lacked a wow factor. The rooms were very nice and comfortable but it just seemed to lack something with its limited roomspace and neutral decor. The bathroom was probably the best bit with a great bath which filled quickly accompanied by molton brown toiletries. The CD player was a nice welcome touch. We noticed that the housekeeping took a long time to be done and for someone who likes to shower regularly there are not a lot of replacement towels (which could have been thicker). The bed was average and lacked the equisiteness of certain hotels which market themselves on deluxe bedding which after all is what one wants most from a hotel room.

Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Location excellent, opt for air conditioned room, we nearly melted without it. Citron restaurant excellent, staff very friendly. Excellent location for shopping

Contemporary chic in Dublin

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just returned from a three night stay at the Fitzwilliam. The hotel is chic and contemporary with excellent service. We stayed in a room overlooking the ongoing construction, but even with the window open noise was not an issue.
Having stayed in most of the other 4 and 5 star hotels in Dublin the Fitzwilliam is the best. We will definitely return there again.

Excellent hotel. The restaurant is surprisingly cheap and good!

from judy017
I got this hotel on Priceline for $160 per night. It was well worth the price. Fluffy bathrobes, complimentary chocolates, CD players with bathroom speakers, all in a prime location. The staff is friendly and helpful. I was most impressed with Citron, the restaraunt in the hotel. They offer amazing deals (two meals for 20 Euro) on fantastic cuisine. The bar also serves some of the best and cheapest food in otherwise overpriced Dublin.

Hotel construction appears to be finished.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from Dublin and stayed at the Fitzwilliam for 5 nights starting on June 12, 2004--we were put in one of the new rooms at the back of the hotel--we were told that the new rooms were about one month old--the rooms, location, and staff were well above average. We paid about $195 (U.S.) per night--bought thru Expedia. There is some new construction going on toward the left side of the hotel, but, our room on the back side was very quiet. You cannot beat this location-it is about 200 feet to the beginning of Grafton street.

Putting on the Fitzwilliam

from sheppardart
Excellent Hotel especially location, service and decor. Elegantly chic and contemporary rooms. Nice space.Very thoughtful. Construction is a problem though, and I was not made aware of this prior to my arrival. Some rooms look directly onto a Construction site and Vice Versa...Avoid these rooms....Work began early on SUNDAY 30MAY which was disturbing. Service was excellent and staff did all possible to faciltate any problems I had.... This hotel enhanced my stay in Dublin and suits the overall sense of style in the heart of Dublin.

Nice hotel ,when finished.

from stevesie1
We stayed at the hotel on a friday night in march 04 ,and although we were pleasantly surprised when we entered our room ,the sound of building work from a major extension was a little worrying .Unfortunately noise could be heard throughout the day and even worse ,we were awakened at 8 am on the saturday morning .This was a shame as the hotel was lovely in all ther respects.

position

from Scousejetsetter
Excellent. Had a long weekend there and the room was very nice and the staff polite and genuine at all times. Did get a good last minute price and possibly would not pay the full normal rates. However, the hotel was very good and the location is ideal. If you get a good enough rate I highly recommend it.

Great location

from HT1
Spent one night here. One of the best locations however it is a little over priced. Excellent restaurant but one of Dublin's most expensive. Free carpark. Decor is modern minimalistic - not sure I like it. There are better hotels in Dublin for the money.

Courtesy, style, and comfort

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent two nights here in December of 2002, after the hotel we'd actually made reservations at had accidentally overbooked and put us up in the Fitzwilliam as recompensation. There is much about the hotel that is impressive, but what impressed me most is that two college students who had been bumped out of a 75 euro a night Best Western were treated no differently than the other guests. The Fitzwilliam staff was helpful, efficient, and friendly as well. The hotel itself is what a modern luxury hotel should be -- no faded flowered bedspreads or beige walls. Fluffy white down bedspread, high quality linens, lovely dark wood furniture -- very sleek, very modern. The shower is not unlike standing under a waterfall, (in the best possible way.) Having stayed at 2 other 4 and 5 star hotels in Dublin, I'm really surprised that this one isn't rated higher in the rankings at Trip Advisor. (It's currently #26.)

Top Local Tips for Dublin

The best steak in Dublin if not world Go to Shanahans if you love steak dining. Make it special. JFKs rocking chair can be seen in the oval office, the downstairs bar at Shanahans. Great atmosphere and incredible food.

trocadero restaurant If you are an American tourist and do not enjoy being seated far, far away from local diners, having to "order" bread for the table, and being rushed through your meal, avoid this restaurant.

Great brunch The Elephant and Castle diner on Temple Bar is always busy but does fantastic brunch/ lunch (don't know about dinner) Good value, tasty and well worth a wait
